XML Discussion board system

Budget $100 - $200 USD
Bids 7
Average Bid $140

Urgently Required with in a week.
I want to create a discussion board system based on XML files rather than databases. The discussion system is an add-on to an existing system so that user registration is already taken care of. You can assume that the user's name will be a Session variable or a query string parameter. The board discussion would allow for the standard features of board systems e.g. quotes, smileys and for a flat structure like phpBB or vBulletin. It should also be acapable of skinning the board through the substitution of CSS and images directory. When a user posts a response they either post a response to the whole thread or to a single reply within the thread. If they post to a single reply then the resulting structure should show this hierarchy. When postig a response the XML file should be locked in some way whilst it is appended to and saved. If the XML file is already being posted to the second user should be able to wait for the first user to release.

This system is not designed for large groups to be able to post to.

Lastly there should be an option to show the discussion in reverse chronological order (i.e. newest post first)

There is no requirement for silly avatars for users or for links to their profiles just their name and date of post.

I would like a simple smiley processing system though.

I would like the project to be written in C# classes running on ASP. I am open to purely ASP based solutions
